THERE'S nothing sadder than a pair of white trainers which have become less than gleaming.
But one woman has come up with a genius solution for getting a pair of old kicks looking brand new.
Posting in Facebook group 'Mrs Hinch Made Me Do It', she shared a snap of a her filthy shoes before revealing the transformation – a sparkling clean pair.
Captioning the images, she wrote: "That was a successful attempt at saving trainers."
Explaining how she was able to scrub them up, she added: "I took the laces out and put them in bleach and oxi stain remover with boiling water.
"I sprayed the trainers with Elbow Grease then put them in the sink with scalding water and bleach and scrubbed with a Minky. I then put them in the washing machine.
They look like a brand new pair.
"I rinsed the laces then bleached them and scrubbed with a tooth brush then put them in a jug with bleach and boiling water. That's it."
Fellow social media users were amazed by the results, and the post has received more than 1.3k 'likes'.
One person wrote: "They look like a brand new pair."
Another commented: "Great job."
A third shared: "That’s amazing!!!!!"
And a fourth added: "Love this."
However, others thought that it was a lot of trouble to go to.
Convinced there's an easier way, one person noted: "The washing machine….. that's what I do and they come up like new."
